A coffin that fell out of a van caused a stir in Brunsbüttel. According to his knowledge, the wooden coffin slipped from the loading area of the vehicle onto the street on Friday, a police spokesman said on Saturday.
Passers-by helped to load the coffin again so that the van could continue. It was not a police operation. A witness reported the whole thing to the police afterwards. Several media had reported on the incident.
According to the spokesman, it was a transfer vehicle from a Romanian funeral home. This probably wanted to bring a deceased Romanian back to his homeland. Another police spokesman referred to pictures on social networks that are supposed to show the incident.
